Petition calls for Karl Rove to be held in Contempt and Jailed for ducking Congressional Hearing

Representatives for an advocacy group coalition, (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, Brave New Films, Campaign for America's Future and The Nation Magazine) hand-delivered a petition to Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) Tuesday containing more than 127,000 signatures calling for former White House adviser Karl Rove to be held in contempt of Congress and jailed.

Rove has denied any involvement in Justice Department activities and submitted a written statement to the committee. The White House has cited executive privilege in arguing that he and others who serve or served in the administration should not testify, maintaining that internal administration communications are confidential and that Congress cannot compel officials to testify.
